Our weeping cherry tree has gone wild. Within the last year or so it seems to have sprouted an additional 5 feet up. Is that normal? It doesn't seem to be developing a nice canopy, rather it's like it's trying to grow as tall as possible. Should we be doing something about it? Thanks! Margaret

There is really no such thing as a dwarf variety of this tree.
